Red is such a striking, beautiful color..I’d rather rid of the blue. 😛 I am biased, though, since it is also my favourite colour!

I would stick with reds.  Bright for the summer!  Navy could work, but I think silver is more for the winter….

ITA with dreambml with the silver being very winter-like.

i think you can do it in a way that is very summer oriented. remember, blue and sliver won’t be the only colors, by default you’ll have green and white as well. Just keep your fabrics light – like a long satin heavy bm dress might be too much, but a chiffon silk tea length with strappy silver shoes might work. And you might want to keep your decorations and flowers a little lighthearted.

I would use white as the most prominent colour and either red or blue as an accent colour, but not both.  Using a combo of red, white and blue in July WILL look like the wedding theme is American patriotism!  I think silver in July will not only look very wintery but is a difficult colour to incorporate… silver table linens would be hard to track down, for example, as would silver BM dresses.  Though you could do it in small touches such as silver centrepiece holders.

I think a good colour to go with is a darker, raspberry red rather than a true red.  True red is a bit harsh & bright and can sometimes be less elegant, but a deep raspberry red is a gorgeous rich hue but not so dark that it can’t work well in the summer.

I actually really like the combo of red and blue, although I’d agree that a July wedding makes it a bit trickier.  Using mostly white with a deeper red, a navy blue, and a lighter blue could be gorgeous, and really classic – I think there was a knot wedding on the 4th of July that did something similar (If I remember correctly, they were also trying to avoid the ultra-patriotic overtones as they were having a very formal wedding).  Silver or even gold would also accent this combo well.  But if the putting red & blue together really must be avoided at all costs, I’d drop the red and just used shades of blue.
